Homeward Bound

In the silence of the night
I heard a voice call out to me
“Be still” it said softly

Following the directions spoken
I laid on my bed eyes closed gently
Listening for the next message to be said

As I laid upon my cushy bed
Visions began to fill my head
“What do they mean?” I timidly asked

Everything I saw moved so fast
Suddenly as if the speed changed pace
I saw a beam of light bright and pure

Looking further I saw the most beautiful face
His eyes were so loving and full of care
His smile alone made life seem perfect and fair

He reached out his hand to bring me near
Strangely I knew I had nothing to fear
Gently taking his hand in my own

He said “fear not child” I will take you home
It seemed in an instant the scenery changed
All of the buildings were rearranged now

I blinked my eyes and saw a majestic site
A building seemed to shine with white glowing light
Slowly I walked to its beautiful wooden door

Turning to Him I asked “can I go in”
He smiled and spoke so eloquently
“You already know the answer my child”

Pushing the door open enough to peak
I could see so many things of beauty
Stepping further inside I am in a state of awe

“Where am I” i whisper to myself quietly
I felt so calm and it was familiar to me
Like a place in a dream my subconscious freed

“My child, fear not you are now home
You were lost before and decided to roam
I waited till your soul was ready to heal”

Love letter

I write this letter for my true love
In hopes to express how I feel
In your arms I know I am safe
Your eyes show me a future of joy
Your kiss sends sparks up my spine
Being bodily entangled with you is devine

Where you go is where I want to be
Your love and support has set the caged bird free

Thank you for all that you do
Without you by my side
I could not make it through

Time to See Finally

Time has come to move on now
Time for healing has finally come here
Here I stand at the angels mercy
Here I pray to God for my heart to be open

Open to finally receive full joy
Open to love myself completely for once
Once I knew exactly where I stand
Once my heart and soul beamed with joy

Joy of experiencing life’s majesty
Joy of watching all mysteries unfolding
Unfolding delicately like grandmother’s quilt
Unfolding like a mother’s tender embraces

Embraces that are filled with love
Embraces that come from all types of family
Family ties that bind us together
Family that is a woven tapestry to handle with care

Care shared as wounded hearts alike
Care that shows lost souls the sacred way
Way to finding peace and tranquility
Way to be finally set free

Free to love open heartedly
Free to be ourselves as true and authentic spirits
Spirits surround us that guide us to safety
Spirits when asked protect us from emotional pain

Pain that is buried deep in our inner core
Pain that lingers from pasts lives carried through time
Time alone can heal wounds that have scarred the soul
Time releases us from our painful pasts

Pasts that we wish to forget finally
Pasts that have shaped us to be who we are today
Today i look back along the broken road i treaded
Today i say thank you to those on that path

Path of pain it used to be long ago
Path of self discovery is what I now choose to see
See the strength I have gained from surviving the fall
See that I am still a beautiful soul after all
